The smaller ones are fabric, wool fleece(roving) silk scraps and fancy yarns needlepunched on the embellisher machine, quilted with decorative machine stitching and embellished with beads, sequins and hand embroidery.


Awaiting closures!

not finished, I'm working on it...

I'm especially happy about the shading of the wing feathers. The varied thrush is closely related to the American robin.

This is done on dyed curtain interlining with scraps of silk and washingup cloths needle punched on. The cross stitch is in variegated stranded and perle cotton.

Okay, so maybe three isn't a stack, but it's the beginning of a stack. All three of these birds are hand embroidered on a machine needle-felted piece of wool. I've had an embellisher/felting machine for a while now, but I haven't been using it much until now. It makes a nice background for hand embroidery. I've felted yarns, fleece, threads and roving into the surface of the wool and then added hand embroidery throughout.

Top to bottom: spotted towhee, varied thrush, Northern flicker

Full pictures coming soon.

Soft box made from a square of 'embellisher' fabric decorated with bonnet stitch in cotton perle. The fabric is a piece of dyed wool blanket machine needle punched with scraps of silk and wool roving, then handstitched in wool and finally machine stitched in matching matt and shiny thread to blend in all the colours.

The future bride will be wearing a gorgeous antique dress and had some scraps of silk from a matching scarf, so I suggested creating an antique-look accessory made from the soft, muted, pink silk,

White velvet was used as a base, and embroidered with a variety of beads, embroidery on net and embellished silk borders.


I am working on the beaded edging and will make the fastening from velvet loops and pearl buttons for a romantic finish

I have done this already in May, however, I did not know how I should finish it.

Now I have strengthened it so. the fact that the gate can stand alone.


I love stories about doors full of secret and sometime they can be open for a walk in a wonderland of my dreams .


Now I have my own secret gate

This is a piece of gold printed sari silk needle punched by machine onto a piece of dyed felted wool fabric. The needles did not like the metallic paint so it made an interesting texture because the painted bits did not get felted. This was very hard on the needles, though, they kept jumping and sliding, so I don't think I will do it again!
